Okay, Cupid

We rated this book:


Jude is on probation for breaking the rules of love and the job. Oh, his job? He’s a Cupid, helping people fall in love who might just need an arrow… uh, a nudge to get the heart fluttering. Unfortunately, the very nature of his job pushes him to forbidden love, which places him on probation. He somehow manages a second chance at matchmaking rather than a second time at school.

He receives an assignment in a high school to help best friends take the next step. Alice and Huy have had a falling out, so it’ll take something extra special for these two to overcome their differences, but there’s something about Huy, something that is different for Jude, something that may risk this entire venture, maybe even Jude’s entire future.

Diverse in race and gender expression, this cute little queer YA rom-com will give hope for unexpected romance. Full of angst and indecision, Jude is every teen, Cupid or not, who has agonized over love and choices and final decisions. Huy is a trans male, and adorable in every aspect. This is for everyone who hopes for a happy ending, but understands that the happy ending may just depend on one’s perspective.
